Posts Tagged ‘High Holidays’

Once again we tripped off to Bridgehampton Barn – and right in the middle of the hurricane week.  Somehow shockingly we got a day of sun and strange misty, foggy weather.  We love going to this beach – where we married – to toss bread crumbs or do ‘tashlich‘ for the High Holidays.  I wrote about tashlich for my synagogue’s newsletter this year, because it’s a special tradition that me and the family like to do on Rosh Hashanah.  It’s especially nice to do it at the beach – a pensive place when all the tourists are away, as they tend to be gone when September comes around.   This 2 day break was really restorative!

Ezra pulled this bench to this spot, and felt inspired to draw!

We were hellbent on frolicking in waves while we can … even Louie enjoyed the beach in Sagaponack and smelled like sea air for a weekend.  Zoe loved having mosquito netting .. er, ‘princess canopy’ .. on her bed.  I don’t think we could find a better spot of ‘moving water’ for Tashlich!  (Don’t know what tashlich is? Click here).  The waves were huge like the day we got married in this same spot and – I’m not lying – the sky really was that pink during sunset hour:

Enjoy this season of renewal and beginnings.  As my rabbi so aptly put in an email to me this a.m:

“Dig down and give – to your partner/spouse/child/parents/extended family/ lover/ friends/community,
The Big World Out There that Needs Your Help SO MUCH!!”

Zoe started the New Year with a peek at her new school .. she was excited until mom and Ezra had to leave her alone. Then she clung to one of the assistant teachers until dad picked her up. I think it may be a good start… an exciting time, for sure.

Her self-imposed ‘uniform’ looks like the one her brother wears to school – and yup, the shoes are on backwards but I pick my battles!
